I am totally pleased with Dr. Blacky. After 4.5 years of unknown chronic chest pain, and so many tests that were done with no results on the cause, I had a heart cath, and Dr. Blacky found the source. He prescribed medicines for me and I have not had a chest pain since. I can not say enough about the relief I feel and my ability to do things again that before triggered my chest pain. Thank you Dr. Blacky!!!

I have been a patient of Dr Blacky’s for over 10 years and have the utmost confidence in him. He is knowledgeable and caring, willing to spend time to answer questions thoroughly. Scheduling and interactions with some of the office staff could be better but I put up with it to get to him. Most medical offices I seem to hanging around in more now have the same issues.

Dr Blacky may be a good doctor but his office staff are rude and unprofessional. I've been in healthcare for 30 years and could not be more appalled at the way they talk to patients and are very unorganized. I do not recommend this doctor.

Really impressed! But his office staff is exasperating. He's worth it if you can withstand the foibles and insensitive treatment.
